Higher education teachers are today starting strike action to demand the safeguarding of health security conditions in universities and say the protest will only end when the problems are resolved.

The strike was called by the National Union of Higher Education (SNESup), with the objective of giving teachers the possibility to refuse to work if they consider that the health conditions necessary to respond to the covid-19 pandemic are not guaranteed.

The union says the strike action will continue indefinitely.

How about if we sack these selfish professors and employ new ones! Stupid trade unions are bringing the country down! They are selfish and have their own interests at heart rather than their students!

All the figures show that corona is no worse than the flu.
No salary, let's see how long they feel unsafe. Or better, fire them and move to online education.
